MSNBC Host Claims "ObamaCare" Is A Derogatory Term; Ignores "HillaryCare"

This weekend, as reported by Mediaite’s Noah Rothman, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her show by claiming “ObamaCare” is a derogatory term designed by rich white men to delegitimize President Obama. 

Harris-Perry stated:

I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean.

The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man; to render him inferior and unequal and to diminish his accomplishments.

Yet Harris-Perry does not explain how “ObamaCare” could be a racist, elitist term used to diminish President Obama — when the term “HillaryCare” long preceded it. 

A quick Google search for the term “HillaryCare,” used prior to January 1, 2008 (i.e., excluding any use after Obama came on the national scene) yields hundreds of results.
